    I am in the process of trying to form the Montana Home Guard due to many things: Militia of Montana is just a business and not a real militia, I forsee some bad stuff on the horizon, etc...

    Read the homepage of the website. You will understand.

    How is this thread providing a plan of action in support of RKBA that OTHERS can follow?

    IOW, how is this anything other than a "look at me" thread?

    It wasn't meant to be a "look at me" thread. I might have presented it the wrong way. Different people can look at the exact same thing different ways.

    Is the glass 1/2 empty, 1/2 full, or twice the size it needs to be?

    What is the plan of action that you want to present to the members of THR that they can use to further RKBA? This is one of the basic requirements for the Activism forum. Discussions on developing plans of action are better suited to Activism Discussion and general ideas that aren't related to planning belong in other forums here.

    So, what is your plan that can be applied by others?

    The plan of action that I want to present to the members of THR is to join a local organized militia or State Guard because they don't operate outside of their respective states. I only live in Montana at the time, so I feel that I can only speak for Montana.

    Is this more along the lines of what you meant?

    I am in the process of trying to form the Montana Home Guard due to many things:

    It seems to me by the info from your own website, it's the governor's job to organize the home guard.

    The home guard shall be organized, armed, equipped, maintained, disciplined, governed, administered, and trained under rules prescribed by the governor. These rules shall conform to federal law and regulations. http://data.opi.mt.gov/bills/mca/10/1/10-1-702.htm

    If this bill hasn't been voted on by the legislature and signed by the governor it seems it's all a proposal not law.

    Well, maybe I could organize it as a 501(c)3 organization.

    So how is joining a state guard supportive of RKBA?

    I like state guards, they play important roles in emergencies and natural disasters. Their members fill useful roles answering phones and keeping an eye on Guard armories when the National Guard is called out.

    But because they're not armed and because they're under the command of the governor I don't see how joining the state guard specifically applies to the restoration of 2A rights.

    I figure that the structure and the operations have a lot to do with it. In the state bill, the sponsor calls for Infantry companies. Most soldiers in the Infantry don't sit behind a desk.

    Due to the bill being tabled, all I can do is organize it as an unorganized militia until the Governor decides to make it an organized militia.

    At least it's better than not doing anything because a bill was not passed.

    I have added some info on the home page to further explain that the Home Guard will fall under the unorganized militia category until the Governor decides to make it organized.
